Austin Artists: Consider Anomaly Archives as Your Inspiration for the Archives in Art Contest

UPDATE: Deadline Extended to March 31st


The Anomaly Archives is a Proud Sponsor of the Austin Archives Bazaar and hopes local Austin artists will take advantage of the Bazaar’s new ARCHIVES-IN-ART CONTEST!

AND, we hope our Austin arts community will consider using the Anomaly Archives collections for its inspiration. We’ve got thousands of weird rare paranormal books, magazines, posters, cultural ephemera and more, covering a wealth of topics that might inspire your next art piece. So contact us about visiting the Anomaly Archives to find your muse! Our weekly hours are Thursdays and Saturdays from 2-6pm. Contact us via  phone (512) 842-9046 or EMAIL.


Artists are encouraged to visit a local archival repository in person OR online and select an archival collection or item to interpret as a 2D visual creative work. The artist’s work can pay homage to historical events or figures, fuel discussion, or examine current events through a historical lens. Topics to consider include (but are not limited to): climate change, cultural celebrations, faith, family history, gentrification, human rights, identity, immigration, and incarceration.

Artists may transform and reconfigure copies of archival material, while being mindful of Fair Use Copyright Law. Sources used MUST be cited. See for more information.”

We’ve finally posted Dr. Barbara MacLeod’s 2018 lecture at the Anomaly Archives. See below for details…


This week we feature one of my favorite books by one of my favorite British researchers … published by her Institute of Psychophysical Research. It also has one of my favorite book covers…

     “The term ‘out-of-body experience’ was introduced in the 1960s by Celia Green … While there had been stories of out-of-body experiences for centuries, Green was the first to systematically examine a large number of first-hand accounts, from more than four hundred people …”

– Oliver Sacks, Hallucinations
